The Beach Guide

Plage d'Herlin Beach (Belle Île)

The sandy cove of Plage d’Herlin lies on the south coast of the island of Belle Île. It was formed by the confluence of three river valleys and is now a beautiful beach protected from the wind by low cliffs to all sides.

Plage d’Herlin is a popular family beach and does get reasonably busy during the summer holidays. There is usually plenty of room though and the beach manages to retain some of its wild / rural character throughout the year.

Swimming here can be dangerous due to strong currents which swirl and create patches of soft sand on the sea floor. There is however a seasonal lifeguard service from lunchtime onwards in the summer.
